    Remove the bottom cushion first. Pull the seat belts from the elastic straps and press the seatback release lever.

  1. 1

    Place the seatback into place, to the front of its normal location, and slide it horizontally into place. Install and tighten the pivot bolts and washers with a wrench. The seatback release lever will click as the seatback gets in position.

    Thread the seat belts back through the elastic straps.

  3. 3

    Push the bottom cushion into place and listen for the release levers to click.
